This is a great flute for the money. Jupiter has, unfortunately, discontinued because it was competing too closely with their Altus models. I have the all silver model from WWBW with both head joints. It actually plays better in tune than the Altus models. The Altus alto and bass flutes tend to play impossibly sharp. Not the case with this flute. The keys work well and the ergonomics are very good, though not quite up to the Altus models The tone is very even, even through the problematic d2-f2 range. The upper register comes out easily, again just as easily as the Altus. The low notes pop right out. In my opinion, this is a far superior instrument to the Trevor James, Pearl, other Jupiter models, and other mid-range models. It plays as well and easily as the Altus and Yamaha model (which despite its name, has no gold in it--just brass). Better buy it soon, because there will be no more made. I've called Jupiter.
I have had my 1200 model (straight head joint) for two years now and have had no problems other than on slightly sticky pad and which was cured with powder paper. This flute has a rich tone through all octaves. I love this alto and couldn't be happier with it. It's big, sturdy, sounds fantasic, and I have had no problems with mine what so ever. If the other reviewer had their flute fixed, how about a review after the fix? Do you like it after the adjustment? If it is an inherent problem I'm still waiting for mine to have it. Until then I'll just play and enjoy.
Be careful with this one. I purchased this flute in July and found that although it really has a great tone, the Bb fingering does not fully close the pad below the G# key. When I spoke to the W&B agent, I was informed that this was an inherent problem with this flute, and that I should return it for an adjustment. I did ship the flute back to W&B and I am waiting for its return to see if they were able to fix the problem.
